Henry Kuttner's Crime Novels




The two by Lewis Padgett are by Kuttner, or possibly Kuttner and Moore. The one under Kuttner's own name is supposed to have been ghosted by Cleve Cartmill.

Interesting! Now I want to read them, How do you find this stuff out?

Bill Crider said...

I've had those books for many, many years. Found stuff out by talking to people and reading fanzines over the years.

Didn't Cartmill also work with Craig Rice on George Sanders' ghost-written Crime on My Hands?

word verification: poidef -- can't hear a damned thing at the luau

Bill Crider said...

Supposedly that's true. The part about Carmill and Rice, I mean. I'm not so sure about the definition of "poidef."

There are people saying Kuttner ghostwrote a Saint story, "King of the Beggars" or some such. And that Cartmill did Saints, too.

Word Up: "Femointi" (Finnish) means a process in which one becomes a light feminist.
